I don't "get" how the line "My father-methinks I see my father" (I, ii,
184) works in the play. It seems too blatant, or too slapstick, or too
weakly ironic, or too something to fit in with the character of Hamlet
or the situation. I notice that it is also frequently cut in
productions.

Can this line be "played" in a reasonable way?

I know this is a question that gets floated on this list quite
frequently, but I hope SHAKSPERIANS won't mind the repetition:

I'm looking for somewhat long-term accommodations (Most of Sept., Oct.,
and November) in London for the Fall-can anyone advise me about
(furnished) flats available for let or sublet, or lists or agencies I
might consult? A B&B with reasonable long-term rates would also be
agreeable.  You can reply privately to me.  With thanks!

Does anyone know where I can get a Wm Shakespeare signature for my MAC?
A student of mine had it on one of her Print Shops.
